  1. 21. Study of pyrolysis and gasification of biomass from the self-organization perspective

    Author : Aliaksandr Alevanau; Ersson Mikael; Weihong Yang; Pär Jönsson; Sylwester Kalisz; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; pyrolisys; pellets; hydrogen; gasification; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the analysis of kinetics of i) low-temperature pyrolysis of gaseous hydrocarbons, ii) high-temperature steam gasification of char of wood pellets (>700oC), iii) high temperature pyrolysis of straw pellets in an atmosphere of argon and steam, and iv) high temperature pyrolysis of slices of transversally cut wooden sticks. The results of the kinetic measurements in the high-temperature cases are approximated using a least-square based optimization software, which was specially developed to analyse kinetics prone for deviation from the Arrhenius law.

  3. 23. Toward Safer Energy Storage Solution by Development of Fluorine-Free Battery Electrolyte

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Elham Hosseini Bab Anari; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sodium-ion batteries SIBs ; aqueous electrolyte; lithium-ion batteries LIBs ; safer electrolyte; fluorine-free salt;

    Abstract : Portable electronic devices such as mobile phones, laptops, cameras and electronic vehicles (EVs) which contain lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), are indispensable part of our modern society. The safety of conventional electrolytes of LIBs, composed of fluorinated lithium salts and organic solvents is the source of some concerns. READ MORE

  4. 24. Discrete Element Modelling and Simulation of Vibratory Screens

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Abstract : In Sweden about 85 million tonnes aggregate is used for road, railway and concrete every year. Crushing is the main process for producing the aggregate material in different fractions. The crushing process is divided into two sub-processes; comminution and separation. READ MORE

  5. 25. Titanium oxide nanoparticle production using high power pulsed plasmas

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Rickard Gunnarsson; Ulf Helmersson; Grzegorz Greczynski; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This thesis covers fundamental aspects of process control when growing titanium oxide nanoparticles in a reactive sputtering process. It covers the influence of oxygen containing gas on the oxidation state of the cathode from which the growth material is ejected, as well as its influence on the particles oxidation state and their nucleation.
